I am trans masculine. I drew my natal genitals. It’s still here after phalloplasty. This part of my body is behind my scrotum, between my scrotum and my bottom. It is modified a little, in that I do not have a labia majora anymore— It’s now my scrotum. I don’t have ovaries or a uterus or a cervix, but I do have a vagina and the parts you see here.
How did you keep this after phalloplasty?
My surgeon, Devin Coon, did not require me to have this organ buried within my phallo penis. Since my urethral opening is in the same place it was, it was simple. My pee hole is the upper dark dot just barely within the vestibule. So, I sit to pee. I can stand to pee using an STP device, but I normally don’t bother.
Is this a penis or a clitoris?
Many trans masculine people term this enlarged natal organ penis or a t-dick.
We folks who have no-burial phalloplasty joke that we have two penises now: The small and the large. It is very large if considered a clitoris, but it is small on the scale of penises. Ah, to be liminal, in between the language of our culture.
Why did you make this?
Among my trans masculine peers, we find it oddly challenging to find images of our anatomy outside pornography. And… most images of the vulva in general put the visual focus on the vaginal vestibule (aka opening). The visual center of my natal parts, to me, is the glans clitoris. So, I shifted the gaze more… looking downward.
